Manly Camera Club usually runs seventeen competitions a year, based on open and set topics. We encourage all members to enter our competitions, as these are good forums to hear constructive appraisals of your work from independent judges. Guests are invited to take part in activities, but only Manly Leagues Club members are allowed to enter the competitions. We try to cater for all members with a range of topics and seek feedback from members each year on possible topics for the following year.
The competitions are divided into Print and Digital categories, with each area having mono and colour sections. Competitors can enter up to four images into each competition. However, there is a maximum of two images per section.
Competitions are judged by experienced and accomplished professionals and each image is awarded a score out of fifteen. Judges provide constructive appraisals to assist entrants on the photographic journey.
More details on club competitions and the rules can be found in our club program and in the calendar below. Please refer to the current program for details about how to prepare and submit images for each competition. A list of definitions is available to assist in entering club competitions. The club also participates in a number of inter club competitions throughout the year and members are encouraged to participate in these events.
